The Principles of Entrainment
Did you know that you are impacted by those around you. You say, “Of course.” Did you know you are capable of picking up the thoughts, emotions, physical sensations, (and for those of you energetically away the energy) of others? Have you ever paused to ask what is yours and what you are aware of that is going on with others?
What is entrainment?
“The Entrainment Transformation Principle: A physics phenomenon of resonance, first observed in the 17th century, has an effect on all of us. Entrainment is defined as the tendency for two oscillating bodies to lock into phase so that they vibrate in harmony. It is also defined as a synchronization of two or more rhythmic cycles. The principle of entrainment is universal, appearing in chemistry, pharmacology, biology, medicine, psychology, sociology, astronomy, architecture and more.
The classic example shows individual pulsing heart muscle cells. When they are brought close together, they begin pulsing in synchrony. Another example of the entrainment effect is women who live in the same household often find that their menstrual cycles will coincide.” (Source: Sound Feelings)
What if many of your thoughts, emotions and physical sensations are not yours but you keep making choices based on what you are aware of in others. Could that possibly change things significantly? Learning to be consistent in asking what is going on, and how to let go of what is not yours is a bit of a journey.
This is why it can be difficult to change your circumstances. If you have entrained to misery and that feels familiar, it can be a challenge to change things. Many people have escaped their very difficult circumstances by consistently choosing to be around people who are more Authentic. At first it is very uncomfortable because it is not familiar. It also brings up internal limitation that need to be cleared.
The good news is that the more people who choose to Live Authentically the more we can facilitate change on a larger scale . It only take the square root of 1% of the population to change things on a larger level. The more you step up and Live Authentically the more you contribute to the larger community to do the same.
